    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    These aren't a breakfast roll, but rather a DELICIOUS treat, and one that I often enjoyed when I was young. My grandmother always made her own pie crust, and she would always make extra, so we could have these yummy treats. This is great for using the extra dough you have from your homemade pie crusts instead of throwing it away. Today I usually use the 9" pre-made unroll and bake pie crusts, because it's quick and easy. You can sprinkle on finely chopped nuts of your choice before rolling up if you like. Walnuts and pecans are my favorite. This is my idea of a comfort dessert :) They were always made with lots of love in my house. I hope you will enjoy them as much as my family! The serving size here is for 2 pre-made 9" pie crusts.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (18 inch) pie crusts, unroll and bake (I use Kroger brand) or 2 (18 inch) pie crusts, homemade and rolled out
    • 118.29 ml sugar
    • 9.85 ml cinnamon
    • 29.58 ml butter, melted


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350.
    2. 2
      Let the pie crust sit out for 1/2 hours if using the unroll and bake crusts, so they get soft enough to roll up without the crust cracking. (Make homemade pie crust if you are making your own. Roll out thin, just as you would to make a pie crust).
    3. 3
      Melt butter in the microwave for 20 seconds, and brush onto top of pie crusts.
    4. 4
      Mix cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle on top of the butter.
    5. 5
      Roll up crust dough jelly roll style, making into a long log. Crimp the edge of the pie crust so it holds together. (See picture).
    6. 6
      Using a sharp knife cut dough into 3/4" pieces, and place cinnamon side down on a greased cookie sheet.
    7. 7
      Bake for 20-22 minutes until a light golden brown. Take out of oven and let cool for a few minutes, then take off sheet, so they don't stick, and let cool.
    8. 8
      Store in plastic container or Zip-Lock baggie, that is if you have any left!

      I made this as a quick breakfast pastry because I was short on time and had a pie crust in the house. "Squish" the roll tightly to keep the sugar from falling out and grease the pan well. These are not as soft as regular cinnamon rolls - they end up more like a flaky cookie (like a palmier).

      I gave this recipe 5 stars. I used to make cinnamon just like this when I was a teenager. I don't remember where I got the idea to do this but I did. Everyone loved them. I was just thinking about these the other day. Thanks for posting a awesome recipe! Christine (internetnut)

      I glazed these with Cinnamon Bun Icing, and they came out so good. I added some cinnamon to the icing just to send it over the top, and it did!!! Everyone loved these and went back for more! I did try a couple without the icing, and they were awesome as is too! Thanks!
